Oh yes! an avocado is meant to be green, so I assume nobody wants to eat an avocado that is anything but green, right? Last time we had our guacamole, I made sure not to fix it was just about time to serve dinner. What stopped me then, is that I really like my salads to be fresh rather than tired & unappealing. Now I can make it in advance, because what I found out lately is that even if you peel an avocado, it won’t turn brown if you place the pit in the middle of its flesh. And of course I had to try that one. So, yesterday I cut the avocado into wedges, put them in a bowl & placed the pit in the middle of the bowl. The avocado wedges stayed green even after being exposed to air for more than an hour. Isn’t that amazing?. And guess what! only now I remembered that when we were visiting, my mother in law served us the guacamole with the pit in the bowl, & I wondered why she did that. But for some reason, it just didn’t happen to me to ask her why she did that! I guess I was too busy eating my food. LOL
The other tip is for freezing the avocados. So if you buy many avocados that you are not going to consume anytime soon. You’ll have to peel & puree them to prevent the browning. Also make sure to add little bit of lemon juice, before freezing them. I tested these tips myself & the avocados are greener than ever!
